Gear Talk / Spongy Wonder cycle seat
« on: November 09, 2008, 01:30:00 pm »
Has anyone had any experience of these new type seat, The Spongy Wonder Seat.  I have just bought one and haven't had chance to try it out before setting off on the Southern Tier. I know, I should know better and this is probably the worst bit of prep anyone could do.  That is why I am now panicing as to whether to go with it or not?

Planning to use the NCT Rails to Trails from Chiefland to Cross City.  Does anyone know if the trail extends from Cross City to Hanes and on to Clara on the 51? It looks like it goes that far on GE but is it ridable on touring bike?

Apparently stops air bleeding through the tube!!! :confuse:

Just for fun come on own up as to what is the "stupidest", "most inapproprite" or "over weight" thing you have ever taken on a long distance cycle tour?
Mine a large bag of Jordons Muselia while touring India, and a Punch and Judy puppet show around SE Asia and China, great for breaking the ice though. ;)

After the Southern Tier plan to head north to San Francisco.  LA bothers me.  Has anyone who knows the route any tips or would you just take a Taxi from one side to the other.  Don't like urban cycling much, did you guess that?
